Make your New Year's health resolution more fun by trying Shimmy Fit at the March-April session of Johns Creek Clubhouse Fitness at Newtown Park.
The Shimmy Fit class, which resembles belly dancing with its fusion of Bollywood and modern dance, allows you to tone your core by working your hips, abs, back and arms in all sorts of new ways. Warm up with basic low-impact isolation moves, and then move to up-tempo dance mix. A limited number of coin belts are available. Classes are at 4:15 p.m. Wednesdays.
Clubhouse Fitness is also offering two additional night classes: Pilates with Props at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday nights, and Yoga/Pilates Fusion at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday. On Saturdays, Clubhouse Fitness has added a new Springtime Yoga Flow at 9:30 a.m. and another LeBarre class at 11 a.m.
Yoga, beginner and intermediate Pilates, traditional Zumba, Pilates-Barre Fusion and LaBarre classes are also offered.
Classes, which are 45 to 75 minutes long, meet once a week for eight weeks beginning the week of March 2 through the week of April 27 (no classes the week of April 6-12 for Spring Break). Session costs $50 for residents and $75 for non-residents for eight-week courses. All fitness levels are welcome. Registration closes Feb. 20.
All sessions are taught by certified instructors and are held at the Newtown Community Clubhouse located at Newtown Park at 3115 Old Alabama Rd. Participants must be at least 16 years old.
